18-foot-long seacreature found off the coast
LOS ANGELES — Amarine scienceinstructor snorkeling off the SouthernCalifornia coast spotted something outof a fantasy novel: the silvery carcassof an 18-foot-long, serpent-likeoarﬁsh.Jasmine Santana of the CatalinaIsland Marine Institute needed morethan 15 helpers to drag the giant seacreature with eyes the size of half dol-lars to shore Sunday.Staffers at the institute are calling itthe discovery of a lifetime.“We’ve never seen a ﬁsh this big,”said Mark Waddington, senior captainof the Tole Mour, CIMI’s sail trainingship. “The last oarﬁsh we saw was threefeet long.”Because oarﬁsh dive more than 3,000feet deep, sightings of the creatures arerare and they are largely unstudied,according to CIMI.The obscure ﬁsh apparently died of natural causes. Tissue samples andvideo footage were sent to be studied bybiologists at the University of California, Santa Barbara.Santana spotted something shimmer-ing about 30 feet deep while snorkelingduring a staff trip in Toyon Bay at SantaCatalina Island, about two dozen milesfrom the mainland.“She said, ‘I have to drag this thingout of here or nobody will believeme,”’Waddington said.After she dragged the carcass by thetail for more than 75 feet, stafferswaded in and helped her bring it toshore.The carcass was on display Tuesdayfor ﬁfth, sixth, and seventh grade stu-dents studying at CIMI. It will beburied in the sand until it decomposesand then its skeleton will be reconsti-tuted for display, Waddington said.The oarﬁsh, which can grow to morethan 50 feet, is a deep-water pelagicﬁsh — the longest bony ﬁsh in theworld, according to CIMI.They are likely responsible for seaserpent legends throughout history.
